VHTC Update on Scratch
As you know I’m working with a Wild Horse of Oak Creek for the upcoming Vaquero Heritage Trainers Challenge October 9-11, in Tehachapi, Ca. My horse is Scratch and we’ve had some ups and downs in the eight weeks we’ve been together. We have also accomplished many things. Scratch trailers well. Scratch has had a veterinary checkup thanks to Bakersfield Large Animal Hospital. He has been saddle and ridden. We are up to about our 17th ride.
This show is a VHTC update on Scratch and I talk about some of the ups and downs of this experience and how we keep working toward our goal of having a safe and trusted saddle horse. We will be competing against seven other very competent trainers. One of the more challenging aspects of this experience is to try and put those feelings aside and concentrate on the horse I have and what I can teach him.

Welcome to the Whoa Podcast about Horses and Horsemanship. I am your host John Harrer. Along with my wife, Ranae, each week on the show we talk about some aspect of owning a horse. It could be feeding or supplementation. It could be bits and bridles, tack, or cowboy boots. We cover training problems, or competing in shows. We talk to farriers and horse chiropractors. We talk about movies, books and magazine articles. And, we travel to places we think you would like to take your horse. That’s what the Whoa Podcast is all about.
